BEPC Webinar: Electronic IRS Form 1023: New Processes and New Content

Join us from 12:00 - 1:00 PM ET on Thursday, August 27, 2020

Presented by 
Elka T. Sachs, Partner, with Krokidas & Bluestein LLP


Earlier this year, the Internal Revenue Services converted the application for tax exemption on IRS Form 1023 to an electronic filing.  As you might expect, the conversion requires applicants (and their attorneys and accountants) to rethink many of the standard processes for preparing and submitting applications for tax exemption. More surprising is the significant number of changes made to the content of the application for tax exemption.  This webinar will discuss the following questions:

  • How do applicants use the new electronic process?
  • What are some of the snags that might arise when filing electronically, and how can these be addressed?
  • Are there strategies that accountants and attorneys should consider when preparing to assist clients with electronic filings?
  • What substantive changes have been made to IRS Form 1023 content?
    Join the webinar to prepare for your next application for tax exemption on IRS Form 1023.
